My Top 6 Reasons Why Most People Fail At Trading

Recommended Posts

Many traders fail for many different reasons. I am sure if you have been active in the markets for any decent period of time you will have experienced the numerous obstacles that the markets can throw in front of you. Sometimes the thing holding you back from being successful is one the most basic principles. A high percentage of traders are not able to overcome them, and often have not even considered them. Below you will find my list of the most encountered obstacles which stop a willing trader from making a profit.

 

Find Your Edge

 

So you have a trading system but do you know what makes it profitable? Have you any idea of its strike rate and can you trust it? A question many traders cannot answer. A simple system that gives you 51 winners versus 49 losers from every hundred will make you money if you know how to manage it correctly, but there is an element of trust needed. Before you trade your system you need to properly analyse it to find out how often it wins and how often it loses. How big are the wins compared to the losses? How big is the drawdown? After answering these questions you will gain an element of trust in your system and be able to ride out the lean times to harness the gains from the bigger picture.

 

Stick To A Plan

 

If you are in a hurry to get somewhere you wouldn’t take the long route would you? Would you drive 1000 kilometers without consulting a map? I would think not. Much is the same with trading. Your system (or edge) is your plan and when travelling to your destination you must stick to the highway. Never stray from the plan and ignore any signs that tempt you to try a different route.

 

Don’t Spend What You Can’t Afford

 

Often a big mistake a losing trader will make is to trade too heavy in one single position. To lose a large percentage of a trading account on one trade is suicide and in doing so you are giving yourself a mountain to climb whilst clawing yourself back to breakeven. Not even mentioning the psychological damage it will do. Trade small in comparison to your trading account, the market will always be there tomorrow and trades will come each and every day.

 

Focus On Points Not Profit

 

We are all in this for one reason and that’s to make money, but money is also the root of all evil. By focusing your mind on percentages of your trading account, counting the points won (not dollars) and risk reward ratios eventually the money will stack up on its own. Thinking “I lost 20 points on that trade” rather than “I lost $200 on that trade” will also help you to stay out of the markets emotional games.

 

Learn From Mistakes

 

They say the clever people in this world are the ones who can instantly learn from their mistakes. This is also true when trading. If you repeat the same mistakes over and over its possible you may not have the correct frame of mind needed to become successful in this game. Learn and never look back. If you stray from your plan and lose try to understand the mistake and reinforce to yourself that it will never happen again.

 

Less Is More

 

How much time can you commit to this? This is a question that should be answered well before you select a system. Trade when you feel happy, trade when the markets open, take your money and leave. Often no position is the best position. Overtrading is one of the biggest downfalls of any new trader and will most likely lead to your account (and mind) burning out. Takes some trades and go do something else to stay fresh.

 

Live Your Life

 

Last but not least never forget what you are doing this for. You are doing this to give yourself a better life and more money. Enjoy it, take some time to live your life and don’t get caught up in the trap of being addicted to the markets.

Charming!.. Welcome to the forum Pete..:(

 

It's a first article.. what do you want me to talk about next?

 

Gann, EW, Delta and tons of other stuff I've studied and binned over the years because of information overload..

 

I'll write something on how I trade, no indicators, only price action..

See if that suits you better...

Actually we don't need you to be charming, but perhaps we could get you to say a word or two about where you come from and what your background is.....What did you do before this....? What do you plan to do here? Do you vend a product or service or both....? Honesty works just fine here however what we see recently are folks who show up and offer to provide something and what they end up doing is trolling for email addresses..Ironically the "first post" often takes a form very similar to yours........its a tough act to follow....Welcome to the forum.

Maybe I shouldn't have got a vendor account?

 

I don't actually sell anything.. I write news for the website in the article footer link which provides free real time stock prices and charts etc.. Not selling anything, just posting up some stuff to help raise some awareness of the site I help out.. which in turn only provides a free service..

 

Am on vacation at moment, but will write some other more "useful" stuff when I get back..

Why You Fail At Trading?

 

Because just like the movie GROUNDHOG DAY, you are doomed to keep repeating your errors until you finally figure it out.

 

But that's just the first part. After you stop losing, you have to learn how to win.

Actually princess, you and your "never lose again" type comments represent the same stupid misleading crap that causes people problems when they try to learn this challenging business...so I don't have a lot of patience with you either.....

 

and just to be fair, on the off chance that I am completely wrong...if ANY of you have read this gentleman's comment and from that point on have NEVER been on the losing side of a trade please take the time to say so here on this thread....surely there must be at least one of you....

 

Looking forward to hearing all about that

Yes Steve, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. I enjoyed that contribution because no matter how much you think you know about trading there is always something else you don't know. Don't knock this guy, he makes a lot of sense even though we have heard it all before our minds always need reinforcement of the basic ideas.

Steve -

 

Given the levels of anxiety you seem to suffer when people question your own 'advise' that everyone has seen and read before (i.e. yet another TA based approach), I'm surprised you are giving this chap such a hard time my old cheese.

 

May I respectfully suggest that before trying to intimidate others, you too try and produce something that some of us havent heard or seen before?

 

Try-

 

Something other than TA (TA is all the same old bollox really)

Something other than a proprietary 'secret' like your HFT indicator or Urma Burma's 'magic' indicator

Something other than '10 parables of success' and similar bed time reading.

 

You see, the thing is my old cheese, it's not the method, but the skill in which it is applied that makes the difference.

 

Trading is no different to any other game like golf or football. The rules are the same for everyone. There are countless books on how to improve ones game. There is no 'secret' to how to play golf, football, or the markets. Yet not everyone is a golf, football or trading 'pro', despite all one needs to know being out in the open.

 

The difference between success and failure is inside the individual. Its determination and application. Nothing more.You cant teach that in a gazzillion of your 'Im a guru' threads.

 

Try and be a little more mature please. Theres a good cheese.

Love that analogy of success. How does one get that ? Through hours and hours of endless night's practice or blowing up just a few more than necessary accounts ?

or do you become so driven that failure is not an option ?

I tend to agree with you on this one.

the main reasons- they are not well learned or they are suffering psychological problems.

 

Learn forex first before opening a real account. There is no alternative way to get success without practicing. Work hard, keep patience, you can win.I think that in all business peoples lose money some time and some time they get profit, profit and loss is the part of any business, so do not be take tension, if you will trade with good strategy then never you will get loss.

Heres a few ideas....

 

not in any order....

 

1. trading the wrong products that are too volatile (fx, crude, etc)

2. paying too much commission

3. greed (see 1)

4. ignoring professional strategies as they are seen as being out of reach or difficult

5. trading like a punter in a casino (ie intraday momentum strategy on an outright), then talking about 'edge' and 'risk management' lol.

6. general ignorance of self and self delusion

 

can I have a 7th?

 

7. joining the herd rather than thinking for yourself (ie trading fx, risking 2%, signals based solely from a chart etc etc - just like the books and gurus tell you).

 

I'm still surprised when folk question why 80-90% lose, when they are all doing slightly different variations of the same thing! 6 months or a few years later - if they are still around, they are still doing the same thing and losing, but they think they have changed what they are doing, yet they havent - they've just changed timeframes, or using a different chart setting, product, etc. lemmings!!!

I think this says it all..

 

Inexperience looses at the beginning, but psychological issues prevent progress..

 

I have seen this over and over again amongst lots and lots of traders.. Many traders gained a lot of knowledge over the years but can't put it together to make it profitable.. Often its clear they have lots of blind spots that comes from psychological issues..

Find Your Edge

 

This is the top problem.

 

Most people do not have a winning system.

 

I've never had a problem sticking to a plan but I've had a very rough time coming up with a profitable system.

 

Following the rules of a losing system won't get you anywhere.

 

Breaking the rules of a losing system won't get you anywhere.

 

The majority of systems you see online are either too vague to have specific rules (which gives the "guru" an out if you ever dare to question his instruction), or have concrete rules but don't backtest or forward test profitably.

 

While we're on the subject, beware of any "guru" who says there's no point in backtesting. That basically means "I don't want you backtesting my system and finding that it isn't profitable because then you'll stop paying me for seminars books and lessons."

 

Stick To A Plan

 

Yeah, definitely, assuming you have a profitable system.

 

If you have a profitable system you are 99% of the way there.

 

Don’t Spend What You Can’t Afford

 

For sure.

 

Focus On Points Not Profit

 

Probably more applicable when increasing contract size. If your first trade is a loser once you increase from 1 to 2 contracts, you might not want to see the dollar amount.

 

Learn From Mistakes

 

Definiately.

 

Less Is More

 

How much time can you commit to this? This is a question that should be answered well before you select a system. Trade when you feel happy, trade when the markets open, take your money and leave. Often no position is the best position. Overtrading is one of the biggest downfalls of any new trader and will most likely lead to your account (and mind) burning out. Takes some trades and go do something else to stay fresh.

 

Oh, you mean overtrading. Yeah. Well, stick to your system's signals!

 

Live Your Life

 

Last but not least never forget what you are doing this for. You are doing this to give yourself a better life and more money. Enjoy it, take some time to live your life and don’t get caught up in the trap of being addicted to the markets.

The reason why I failed in trading when I started was because My motive was initially wrong and my approach was terrible. I wanted to make so much money in a short time so desperately that I lost everything I started with. I approached Forex like a gamble and it cost me. Well, that is behind now.

      Hello everyone!
      I am an advanced trader, with many years of experience (about 15 years - 10 living exclusively from this)
      I am going to give you some tips that you must know:
      There are going to be many people who tell you that trade is easy, that with only crossiing a line  with another one you will win a lot of money.... and that´s not true.  No, Sir, reality is far away from that. Many people who start arrive here with the hope that someone "gives them" a free method, they watch youtube videos thinking that this will give them the "strategy" and in a few days they realize that it does not work for them - they lose money - and then They go looking for a new one ... and so on. YES, IT´S TRUE YOU EARN IN TRADING, A LOT. BUT THINK: for a few to win (10% + any BROKER) many others must lose (90% people). YOU MUST HAVE A MONEY MANAGMENT FORMULA ( you can email me) People study so many years to live on this, not because they are dumb, but to know what they do, when, and have absolute effectiveness. It´s very easy to get lost here: do not disperse, jumping from one to another strategy WILL NEVER give you money, it will only waste your time and make you nervous when trading. PEOPLE WHO CHANGE THEIR METHOD CONSTANTLY : LOOOOSE ALWAYS.   If you have the knowledge to develop it, take your time and do it.  Always try it first on DEMO for at least 2 weeks! If not: search to buy a solid strategy (no you tube videos pleassse ! Avoid losing money! ) This is like any business, it requires some capital to start (capital = money in the broker + solid made /purchased strategy) If you are lost: I RECOMMEND YOU NOT TO WASTE TIME IN YOUTUBE, JOIN PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY A METHOD ... PLEASE !!!! DO NOT BUY 10 BAD AND CHEAP METHODS, SAVE MONEY AND BUY ONLY 1 BUT EXCLUSIVE AND MUST ALLWAYS HAVE SUPPORT !!!!!  Do not buy Signals! They never keep up with constant profits! One week will win and the next will lose. Nothing that does not depend absolutely on you will give you the money you are looking for. And if you do not have a strategy (made or purchased) do not even try PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: DO NOT USE REAL MONEY! AT LEAST 2 WEEK DEMO FREE HELP HERE!!!!!  IF YOU FOLLOW MY ADVICE YOU WILL BE PART OF THAT 10% WINNER, email me.
      Have a nice trading day

      So I've been 18 for about 4 months, since I turned 18 I started up an account, and basically thought I was doing amazing because of beginners luck, put in some of my savings and managed to do well, some days I would make £200, one day I even made £900, after time I lost my profits and made a loss as well. I've realised I need to spend the time analysing the market and making technical judgments. I'm trying to read more and spend a lot of my time looking at the charts. is there any advice people can give me. and is making 5% a week a realistic goal to set myself? before anyone assumes that im looking for a get rich quick scheme, im certainly not, I see every loss ive made as a lesson and ensure that I learn from each mistake I make. 
      any advice about indicators, strategies, how to analyse the market, or even analysing earning reports would help me.
